The Graduation That Was

This will be a picture story.. I’m not feeling very chatty today. I’ll tell you why at the end of the post.

So on Thursday morning, we left early for the graduation square. All graduands sat under this gigantic tent that was decorated with university colours.

The graduation square

Our names were read out…. we had to wait for all the undergraduate degrees to be called out before we were finally conferred with our degrees. You can imagine reading out over 3,000 names can induce sleep!

Poor guy couldn't stay awake. I hope he doesn't sue me for using his image without permission! Don't tell him!

Finally though, our names were read, we stood up, we were given the powers to read and we threw our hats into the air. We had to be careful though, if you lost yours you have to pay a big fine.

The throwing of the graduation hat!

Later, we posed for pics with our family, friends, and fellow graduands. These below are the first class honours recipients in computer science.

Me, Em, Monch, Walter. Congratulations my friends!

P.S.

Remember me saying I’m not feeling chatty? Google called this morning: bad news. They don’t think I’m quite ready for an internship yet. Oh well, life goes on?
